Parador De Cangas De Onis4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
This was the fourth Parador we stayed in on our Picos Tour. The room was lovely and the surroundings quite stunning. The staff were hard working but obviously found it difficult to cope with large numbers of guests. This was the case in all the Paradors. More staff would have made for a more efficient service.
My wife and I stayed for a couple of nights and thoroughly enjoyed our first stay in a Parador in such a lovely location. The rooms and overall theme of the hotel was delightful and the food served in the restaurant was excellent. The only reason that I have not awarded it 5 stars was that whilst touring Spain we found many equally good hotels for lesser overnight prices.
The hotel is built round the cloisters of the historic monastery and we visited the church via the covered cloisters. We enjoyed an excellent dinner even if portions were enough for two! Shoulder of lamb was exceptional. The only reason I can't give 5 star rating was poor sound proofing which meant we could hear the man in the next room snoring! Management were apologetic and plan improvements.
We had a most enjoyable stay. It's nestled into the Picos Europa with high annual rainfall, but the Parador has cleverly covered walkways so it's possible to walk around most of the property without going outdoors, including to see the cloister and chapel. The bar is a comfortable spot to hang out and offers a complimentary tapa with a glass of wine. The restaurant has a great enclosed veranda with heat lamps so it's inviting even on a rainy night such as we just had. The restaurant staff are knowledgable and friendly. We tried the Monastic menu and found it very tasty and elegant with the exception of the mountain stew which was too rustic and we felt did not complement the rest of the menu. Also the portions are extremely generous....had we known, we may have ordered differently. We can recommend the drive to Cangas along the Picos from Canatabria......really gorgeous!
terrific building, packed with history and character. rooms very comfy. we ate in the restaurant one night, and although the food was fine (the 3 course menu was way too much food), it was rather expensive for what it was. Service could have been better too but in fairness the restaurant was packed. Similarly, the breakfast buffet, though very good, was a rather eye-watering 18 euros extra. Staff very helpful, especially when i forgot my Kindle, couriering it on to us in madrid
This parador has a very beautiful location, with even walking paths leading directly along river behind it. It is nice to look around the old church and surroundings. There is a guided tour put on by the parador manager and there was also a very nice choral concert when we stayed. The rooms are spacious and comfortable although the first we had (room 101) was quite noisy with amplified corridor and floor-scraping noises etc. However we were able to chance to a quieter top floor room the second night. We had half board, no problems with breakfast or dinner, actually second day we had lunch which may be a better option, more relaxed and you don´t have to wait til after 20:30 to eat! Quite expensive in high season. Cangas de Onis itself is a 3min drive or 2km walk away and may be an option to eat outside as there are quite a lot of restaurants there, as it is a tourist town.
Located in a hamlet close to a river, this hotel is a gem belonging to Spain's history. It was great to wake up, walk about the magnificent internal cloister, and look for the weirdest gargoyle on the walls of the bell tower. Very clean rooms and superb breakfast. Definitely a must visit!
We had booked into a hotel in Cangis de Onis and after walking around the town on a miserable day we were not enthused with the restaurant offerings for dinner. We called the Parador and told them we had just stayed at the parador in Fuente de and would like to make a reservation for dinner later that night. We had a wonderful dinner on the terrace ( closed from the elements) Tania was very helpful with my gluten free options and the hotel receptionist kindly ordered a taxi for our return trip to our hotel. It was a Saturday night and they had a wedding in the hotel and there was a huge techno festival nearby but she managed to find us a taxi from nearby Arriondas. Thank you Paradors are the best !
Friendly staff but not a lot of info provided on area - we learned at all locations you have to ask a lot of questions to get info you want. Food was good but a bit over priced. very clean and well taken care of.
Parador de Cangas de Onis was one of my favourites. We were in the old section and the rooms are lovely. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The information boards around the building and grounds are interesting. The food in the restaurant is good.
